If your life and career plans include achieving some BIG GOALS, then you must decide that what you want is BIGGER and far more important than any fear which prevents you from achieving it.
A BIG CHALLENGING GOAL is one of the few things in life which immediately engages the fight-or-flight mechanism.
Fear is never a reason for quitting. It’s only an excuse for those unwilling to face their doubts, insecurities, and mental boogie man.
Therefore, your first duty in rising to meet the demands of a challenging goal is to conquer fear and the mental resistance it brings along with it.
Before you begin, you must shine a flashlight to your soul and inspect yourself for will, courage and grit.
You must decide right now, that you are going to put fear behind you — that you are going to stare it down, and walk straight through it, advancing toward the goal(s) you want with confidence, conviction, and certainty.
Perseverance is ultimately a physical, emotional, and spiritual demonstration of how badly you want to succeed.
As it should be, it’s constantly fueled by a heart-pounding, ego-bashing, soul-searching test of your limits.
So let them see you sweat, as YOU express your greatness not by the acts you perform, not by the goals you achieve, but by the gritty perseverance that made those acts possible.
It is irresponsible to take on a big challenging goal without the will, heart, and mindset to win it, as nothing can withstand the power of an indomitable spirit.
If you passionately believe that you are up to the challenge and committed to seeing your goals achieved, it is your right and responsibility to cultivate an unbeatable mind and persevere until the end.
This is one of the many lessons you will learn once you begin the 100 Day Challenge!
